I did not really understand what kind of retirement is.
I mean, it sounds they just sell strings and few more things. No more basses produced!
Is it correct?
It does sound like a full retirement.
What I don't understand is why they didn't continue with the employees they have worked with them all these years.
Or some of them buying the company.
It's quite wierd stopping a 30year succesfull production all of the sudden! IMHO!

It's quite simple... Rob is a perfectionist and every single bass he makes goes through his fingers at the end of production. So if he wants to 'slow down' or stop working then everything stops!

Just to put things into perspective, it's been more than 40 years! I have a Status bass that's 41 years old!

Is there any indication about ongoing support and repairs since Rob has retired?
My bass could do with a re-fret but apparently they're not doing that kind of work either.
